With over 35 years of combined experience in the optical industry, it just made sense that owners Brandon Dill and Jon Martino teamed up to create Fuse Lenses.
It all started when a mutual friend scratched the lenses in his perfectly good, quality frame. Not wanting to dish out the money for a completely new pair, he asked if it would be possible to replace the lenses instead. That was the beginning of Fuse Lenses.
Since then, Fuse has been dedicated to creating the highest quality lenses for all the brands you love - brands that you never want leave the house without, but may have you feeling cast aside due to a discontinued style or lack of replacement options.
Over the years, we’ve grown not only our products, but also our community of athletes, advocates, and trusted Fuse partners. We know your sunglasses get beat up - dropped, sat on, and taken into the harshest elements - and they don’t always stand up to the challenge. That’s why we still continuously work to develop stronger scratch resistance, more durable coatings, and crisper optics. We want to not only provide the vision you expect for your high quality frames, but also become a trusted ally in all of your everyday adventures.
Brandon has over 20 years of optical experience under his belt. Today, he does everything from paying taxes to repairing machines in the lab, to organizing team meetings, to supervising marketing efforts, or to just pouring coffee for his tired employees.
Jon got his start in the optical industry at the ripe age of 18. Since then, he has dedicated his entire life to finding the perfect balance of strong hardcoatings and fashionable colors for your Fuse Lenses.

Also known as “Peggy” or “Mom” to some, Margaret answers emails from the comfort of her home. She does sometimes swing by the office, so her two peekapoos can come say hello

Whitney took a break from being a mermaid to use her southern charm to find your ideal match (of lens color, that is.) She even helps you two work through any issues you might have.
Peter always comes early and stays late to do what he does best - sit in his office and watch over the lab workers. If Peter could tell you only one thing about himself, he would, without a doubt, tell you that he does CrossFit.
Josh shows as much dedication in expertly tracing and cutting your custom lens orders as he does in raising his two sons. Maybe even more dedication, since this job does not require changing dirty diapers.

One of the younger Fuse Family members, Jacob works part time cutting lenses when he is not in school. All the while, he is no doubt daydreaming of his next payday.
